Swanland Village Signs Project

In 2009 the SVA started erecting village signs depicting a Swan on a blue background in an oval gold frame.

They measure approximately one metre across with the village name in green and gold underneath and cost over £2000 each.

They are now looking for local businesses or business people to sponsor part or all of cost of a 7th further sign for Woodgates Lane which will cost £2,162.

Please do not pollute the Pond
Please do not throw ANYTHING into the village pond - as well as litter, traffic cones and the usual debris this includes unwanted water plants and fish. The pond group should be consulted about any form of wild life or plants being introduced. If you want to feed the ducks Please use grain. Proper duck food is available from the Peppertree florist.
